All the glory be unto Thee the Lord, for he is worthy of our Praise, no man on earth should be glory to his Name, all the glory must be to the Lord// Take glory Father, take glory Son, take glory Holy Spirit now forever more.

Father I will lift up my voice, I will gladly sing not for what you have done but for who you are. Thank You for the grace and love abound all round me. Glory be to Your Name on high. The God that answereth by fire he will be my God! Yes! Father you answereth by fire and you will forever be my Father.

All power belong to Jesus, all glory all honour to Thee. Eternal Rock of Ages thank You for the moment to hear and share your Word, arise in your power and glory and release unto us the truth in your word in Jesus Name.

Beloved, Praise be to Jesus whose love for us led Him to die on the cross that we may live eternally. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justify by His blood, we shall be save from wrath through him. ….  Romans 5:8 -11(KJV).

God give us His beloved Son that will may live, what a love that knows no bound. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins (1 John 4:10) (KJV).

It was God’s delight to give us His Son which is above every any other gift that we have ever receive. Praise God!

Let us appropriate this kind acts by faith that we may be partaker of God’s love to mankind. Let us read more:

“And the Lord said unto Abraham, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” Gen. 13:14, 15

 

A special blessing for a memorable occasion. Abram had settled a family dispute. He had said, “Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between thee and me, for we be brethren”; and hence he received the blessing which belongs to peacemakers. The Lord and giver of peace delights to manifest His grace to those who seek peace and pursue it. If we desire closer communion with God, we must keep closer to the ways of peace.

Abram had behaved very generously to his kinsman, giving him his choice of the land. If we deny ourselves for peace’ sake, the Lord will more than make it up to us. As far as the patriarch can see, he can claim, and we may do the like by faith. Abram had to wait for the actual possession, but the Lord entailed the land upon him and his posterity.

Boundless blessings belong to us by covenant gift. All things are ours. When we please the Lord, He makes us to look everywhere, and see all things our own, whether things present, or things to come, all are ours, and we are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

Having shed His blood on the cross, at time the wrath of God wants to rise up against man, the blood of Jesus pleas our case. Indeed the Lord is slow to anger, and great in power. Come along for more:

 

“The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power.” Nahum 1:3

 

Jehovah “is slow to anger.” When mercy cometh into the world she driveth winged steeds; the axles of her chariot-wheels are red hot with speed; but when wrath goeth forth, it toileth on with tardy footsteps, for God taketh no pleasure in the sinner’s death.

God’s rod of mercy is ever in His hands outstretched; His sword of justice is in its scabbard, held down by that pierced hand of love which bled for the sins of men. “The Lord is slow to anger,” because He is GREAT IN POWER. He is truly great in power who hath power over himself. When God’s power doth restrain Himself, then it is power indeed: the power that binds omnipotence is omnipotence surpassed.

A man who has a strong mind can bear to be insulted long, and only resents the wrong when a sense of right demands his action. The weak mind is irritated at a little: the strong mind bears it like a rock which moveth not, though a thousand breakers dash upon it, and cast their pitiful malice in spray upon its summit.

God marketh His enemies, and yet He bestirs not Himself, but holdeth in His anger. If He were less divine than He is, He would long ere this have sent forth the whole of His thunders, and emptied the magazines of heaven; He would long ere this have blasted the earth with the wondrous fires of its lower regions, and man would have been utterly destroyed; but the greatness of his power brings us mercy.

Dear reader, what is your state this day? Can you by humble faith look to Jesus, and say, “My substitute, Thou art my rock, my trust”? Then, beloved, be not afraid of God’s power; for by faith you have fled to Christ for refuge, the power of God need no more terrify you, than the shield and sword of the warrior need terrify those whom he loves. Rather rejoice that He who is “great in power” is your Father and Friend

Thanks be to Jesus for His wondrous love that saved a wretch like me. Praise God! Have faith in the Lord and in the power of His might. Never take His long suffering as a liberty to continue in sin.

Whatsoever the devil has stolen from you, the Lord will be delightful to restore it back to you in hundred folds in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
